Wow. . . that really sucks BWG! Were the poor fish terribly thin and weak? I hope they make it through allright. . . I just love my Cuneys, I can't imagine starving them like that. . .


Crush on, friends!

*still thinks that guys with hammers and fish food are cute*


I have no idea about tinyfish, but my Cuneys LOVE Daphnia, and baby brine shrimp is even TINIER. Both of these foods are usually okay for fry - my live-bearer guppy, platy, and molly fry ate daphnia with no problem from the beginning. Nano is nano, but guppy fry are smaller. . . try it!

They were not, which you already know. They were also getting other foods though like daphnia and baby brine shrimp. I have to be exact careful to make sure the staple food I have for them can be eaten...especially given how rare they are. Wasn't a slight on you! :P

PS-Men love tools.

You men and your tools are so funny, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I cut my goldfish food daily, so I can't make but so much fun of you boys. At least I get to use a knife...

In other news, awesome to know the ! rasbora are eating! I can't wait to see them color up and find out where they come from!

So today I feed the ! Rasbora (I like that name, Thanks Izzy now its stuck in my head like that!) some Daphnia and shot a video of me doing so...



The Daphnia was a lil big for them soo they would take a bit spit it out and then chase it to finish it off. LoL You can see it in the video some. They did eat it through.

I'm glad you're enjoying the fish and that they seem to be doing well for you. Nice work on the video! Now stopping taking such good videos and pictures of your nano fish before I decide to start a "let's get John a bigger tank" fund.

I have been talking to my wife about my tanks and I want to downgrade so to speak.
I have a brand new 40b that I want to move the 10 gallon into. I then want to use a 10 for a QT tank and the other for a hospital tank. So that would be getting rid of the 29 gallon and the 5.5 and my lil 1 gallon bowl. The problem.... I don't have a stand for the 40b,lights,or hood. I also have to wait till my Dwarf puffer passes away because I can't get rid of him!

You wouldn't be putting the betta in with the ! rasboras in that scenario would you?
